Interactive editor for flow diagrams (dataflow, flowchart, org
chart, etc.), with direct manipulation drag & drop interface.
Supports hierarchical diagrams, colors, fonts, and several line and
object types (including images). Define custom commands to be within
diagrams. PostScript, MIF, HPGL, and ASCII output formats.
XView-based program that plots Lorenz Attractors and other chaotic things
in real time. Also includes a mathematical expression interpreter.
Free: ACE/gr -- graph and analysis program, xvgr
Ftp: ftp.ccalmr.ogi.edu; xvgr-2.10pl1.tar.Z in /CCALMR/pub/acegr
Handles x-y scatterplots, lineplots, bargraphs, FFT analysis, running
averages, polynomial fits, etc.
Free: robot - a scientific graph plotting and data analysis tool
Contact: Robin Corbet <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Graph plotting in various styles & axes; Data manipulation - arithmetic,
functions, smoothing, folding, sorting; Fitting to data using Gaussians,
polynomials, Lorentzians, and/or user defined functions; Annotation of
graphs; log files; Commands with loops etc.; Colour; PostScript output.
Ftp: ftp.astro.psu.edu in pub/astrod
Ftp: files: robotx0.48.tar.Z - everything
Ftp: files: RobotManual.ps.Z - just the documentation.
Ftp: files: robot.sun4.Z - binary built on a SPARCstation.
Robot is XView based. User interface portions of code are written in
'C'. Data manipulation code is written in FORTRAN. Hence a FORTRAN
compiler is also required or the public domain f2c package.
Alternatively, a SPARC binary is available by anonymous ftp.
The latest "numbered" version is robotx0.48.tar.Z (robot-beta.tar.gz
contains a number of bug fixes). Binaries for DEC (Ultrix) and IBM PC
clones (LINUX) are also available.
